So my wife and I were the very first ones in line for lunch on this, Richard’s 2018 season closing day. The line up was crazy long behind us. We both got the fish and chips and for $13.95, they sure didn’t skimp. Two big...More

Went after a day of touring the island. Two unsolicited recommendations from locals for “the best fish and chips on the island”. Located in a provincial park. Unassuming venue in character with surroundings - fishing boats and fish related operations - deep sea fishing, fresh...More

We visit PEI every summer and Richard's is a place we visit more than once during every vacation. Great food, served on the wharf and not far from the best beaches! The only challenge with Richard's is that it is so popular you almost always...More

I contacted Richard's. They have public washrooms with ramps, but no hand rails in the stalls. The restaurant has a ramp and a table to accommodate wheelchairs and will move another table in place if necessary.

Yes, I believe they do. Where they’re a fresh, local fishery though it’s likely dependant on their season and supply. May be a good idea to call ahead and ask first.
